LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A poll released Wednesday shows 47 percent of voters said they'd back Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm if the election were held today, while 44 percent would back GOP challenger Dick DeVos and 9 percent were undecided.
Granholm's numbers have improved slightly since a June poll. Then, 46 percent said they'd back DeVos and 44 percent said they'd back the governor, with 10 percent undecided.
Both polls were conducted by Lansing-based EPIC-MRA for a consortium made up of The Detroit News and television stations WXYZ of Detroit, WOOD of Grand Rapids, WILX of Lansing and WJRT of Flint.
EPIC/MRA polls lean democrat as I've said before. That said, the race is close and anything can happen between now and election day. I'm not discouraged by this poll, and I wasn't declaring victory on the others.
That comes November 7.
